Who's to Blame for Lack of NCLB Action?

| 1 Comment

The leaders of the House Education and Labor Committee agree that their attempt to reauthorize NCLB is at a standstill. But they disagree about who is to blame for that.

Here's the take of Rep. George Miller, D-Calif., the chairman of the committee: "Congress offered the president an opportunity to resuscitate his legacy by working in a bipartisan way on comprehensive reforms to the No Child Left Behind law, and he rejected it."

And here's the perspective of Rep. Howard P. "Buck" McKeon, R-Calif., the senior GOP member of the committee: “Unfortunately, more than a year into their congressional majority, Democrats have all but ignored the pressing need to revitalize this law that impacts our nation’s schools.”

Who's to blame for NCLB Action?
Unfortunately when it comes to holding somebody accountable fingers start pointing. NCLB is a product or an outcome that some considered feasible and appropriate. However, without a play by play script governing bodies that have jurisdiction and authority of the day to day operations of the school are going to "feel" their way through a process that they have pieced together.
Thus, you pose the question who is to blame for action or inaction of our public leaders?
Me, you, my/your friends, your/my neighbors, your/my family etc.
I truly believe universal choice, either intra or inter district will provide parents the opportunity to actually take action when a behemoth bureaucracy cannot.
